    Misleading overpriced bills in excess of usage

    They have repeatedly overcharged me claiming the bill is accurate. On one occasion I rang to challenge the bill. The person could not have been less helpful or more infuriating. I explained the bill could not be correct as the only gas I used was for my hot water & hydronic heating unit. As this had not been working for the entire billing period I had used precisely no gas. They then asked if I was suggesting I had a gas leak. I said no that I was suggesting their bill was incorrect. She then went on in detail to tell me someone could be sent to check if there was a gas leak. This would be free of charge if a leak was found but would cost me $99.00 if there was no leak. I told her I did not want this as I did not believe there was a gas leak. We then spent a while going around in circles as I reminded her she had suggested there was a gas leak not I and that I believed the bill was incorrect. After at least 45 very frustrating minutes she told me the bill was actually an estimated bill. We then had a fruitless discussion as to why they did not engage people who would actually read the meter. I did not pay that bill. They did actually read the meter. Even though I did not pay that grossly inaccurate and highly misleading bill, I then had very little to pay for the next bill as they had overcharged me to such a degree on the bill or bills prior to the one prompting my complaint. The above was not an isolated event. I also received another bill which was much greater than for the same time the previous year. I had been away for quite a period and as stated above only have a single gas device. As I did not heat my house or use hot water while away the bill was clearly incorrect. After much time and frustrating effort they again acknowledged it was an estimated account. I told them I would pay the next bill based upon an actual reading. Again that account was a mere shadow of the former highly inflated account. You must wonder why I have not changed providers. I have bipolar disorder and am frequently unwell. This interferes with my ability to organise my way out of a paper bag much less take on an energy company with its might and power and obvious obscuration of the facts. When I finally did arrange to change, on the day I was due to switch over, I received my first spontaneous call from the company from someone who actually wanted to do some of assistance to me. Even on this occasion they annoyed and upset me as they offered me a significantly better deal, not because I was a loyal long standing client but because, otherwise, I would have changed companies. When I said this was an extremely disappointing policy and approach to customer service the response was that it was company policy and everyone did it that way. I as I do not know the policies of other companies, how do I know whether or not this is true. As the deal they offered was significantly better than the one offered by the other company and as I have lost my job due to my illness and very severe repeated bouts of depression, I stayed with them. It however does not leave me with a warm gas fuelled hydronically heated glow about Lumo Energy. If I was well enough I would try to find a better provider.
